CHIEF  TECHNOLOGY  OFFICER  BEYOND  GUIDE;  WASHINGTON  DC  —  1999-2002

Beyond Guide Inc developed novel  new technology to provide tourist guidance services. Our idea was to extend a tourist experience to beyond the confines of time and space of the site they were visiting. The Natural History Museum experience definitely extends the physical confinement of the museum housing natural history exhibits. The Beyond Guide tourist would have  continued the experience once leaving the museum, living and witnessing in the real world  what they saw in the museum where applicable. Similarly, a visitor to the American History museum would have  extended the visit to the numerous historical sites in radius of hundreds of miles from DC. Furthermore, the experience was tailored to the individual tourist, hence a tourist from Germany interested in architecture would get  different guidance than  an African American from Alabama focused on the civil rights  struggle. BeyondGuide’s IP was co-authored by Yuval.
